Pleasant, fresh nose of raspberries and creamy minerals, colored with hints of sous-bois that verge on truffle character. Full-to medium-bodied and very silky, with a lighter framework of fine tannin this year. Long, balanced finish. JS
Aromas of dried strawberries, cherries, charcoal and dried flowers follow through to a full body with tight, chewy tannins that are well integrated into the wine. It shows black truffle and berry in the aftertaste.
Ceretto Barolo Prapo 2014
This Nebbiolo offers delicate tones of rose hip, forest berry, toast, scorched earth and truffle. The mouthfeel is subdued in terms of flavor intensity but not in terms of texture. In fact, that thin and compact feeling is actually surprisingly firm, silky and long. RP
